Rowan Harbor has had a tough winter, and Devon Murphy wants nothing more than to make it better. When he proposes a solution to the town’s low morale, it creates a rift in his relationship with his boyfriend, Wade.

They’ve hardly ever argued, and when things get tense, Devon has no idea how to handle it.

But an evil presence in his town targets the people Devon loves, he has to put his personal worries aside and face danger down again.

Will he be able to protect his town, and if he can, will Wade be waiting for him when it’s done?

About The Author

Copy of Logo.jpg

Sam wrote her first fantasy epic with her best friend when she was ten. Like almost any epic fiction written by a ten-year-old, it was awful.

She likes to think she’s improved since then, if only because she has better handwriting now.

If she’s not writing, she’s almost certainly either reading or lost down a Wikipedia rabbit hole while pretending to research for a novel.

Devon and Wade wrap up their romance in another fabulous instalment

Eagle CoverEagle in the Hawthorn by Sam Burns

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I want to live in Sam Burns’ imagination, or if not there, I’ll settle for her amazing creation of Rowan Harbor.

This book wraps up Devon and Wade’s romance arc and gives us more clues as to just who the big bad is who has been threatening the town and the supernatural creatures who live there.

I loved the twist in this tale, which saw Devon’s mother returning to the Harbor and bringing with her another piece of the puzzle.

The whole feel of this series is unique, whimsical and quirky, even when dealing with quite seriously dark subjects like zombie possession and inadvertently messing up people’s minds.

As the series draws closer to the end, I have to say I still have no clue how it’s all going to wrap up and the enemy be thwarted but I’m sure it will be done in a way which is wholly fitting to this quite brilliant series.

Broken Halos | Aimee Nicole Walker

Broken Halos Cover

BLURB

Oliver Knight’s past is shrouded by sorrow and tragedy, but instead of hiding from it, Ollie owns his truth and uses his experiences to uplift others. As an out and proud pastor, he provides a safe place for LGBTQ Christians to gather and worship, and as a recovering addict, he counsels those pursuing sobriety. Ollie’s life is fulfilling but also a little lonely. He may not have a hard time meeting men, but he does have a hard time getting them to stick around once they discover his vocation.

Archie White is a former drag queen who hung up his stilettos to start an HIV transition home in the memory of someone he held near and dear to his heart. All work and no play has made Archie a very dull man, but he thinks his luck is about to change when a friend introduces him to a dark-eyed stranger. That is until he learns the man is a pastor. Archie detests anything to do with religion, and for very good reasons.

Archie’s gut tells him to run, and Ollie’s heart tells him to pursue. What can a pastor and a sometimes-queen possibly have in common? A desire to find unconditional love with someone who truly sees them. What happens next is the poignant, sweet, and sexy journey for two resilient hearts. Ollie and Archie’s halos might be battered and a little tarnished, but they’re definitely not broken.

Broken Halos is a charming story with heart, heat, and humor. Warning: these characters and their quirky sidekicks may take up permanent residence in your heart, so proceed with caution.

Each book in the Queen City Rogues series can be read as part of the series or as a standalone novel. This book contains sexually explicit material and colorful language intended for adults 18 and older.

Broken Halos Teaser 1

EXCERPT

“Ollie, I didn’t expect to see you here,” Archie said in a neutral tone.

I just stared at him, unable to think or even blink, because he was the most beautiful being I’d ever seen. Whatever he’d done with his makeup made his eyes look bigger, greener, and shinier. I’d never seen eyelashes that long on another person. And his lips…The gloss made them look plumper, and I was dying to know if the shiny substance had a taste. If so, what would the pink gloss taste like? Strawberry? Melon? Cotton candy? How would those luscious lips feel working up and down my cock?

“Um,” I finally managed to say in an embarrassing squeak. The lips I couldn’t stop staring at spread into a slow smile which finally made me look into Archie’s eyes again. I wanted to see if they looked as inviting as his lips. His green gaze expressed the hesitance I was accustomed to seeing from him, but I also saw joy. I didn’t know how someone could look both unhappy and happy at the same time, but he somehow pulled it off. Archie raised one perfectly shaped brow and waited for me to say something else. What did he want? An apology? “Are you unhappy to see me?”

“Of course not. What we have here is a failure to communicate.” My left eyebrow lifted at the Cool Hand Luke reference. Apparently, Archie quoted movie lines when he was angry or nervous. I thought it was adorable. “I thought our parting kiss indicated we were in a good place. I thought you said you’d see me soon. Oh, wow,” he said then briefly covered his mouth to hide a smirk. “That sounded really needy and desperate.”

To me, it was music to my ears. He apparently had missed me a little to react in such a way. “You sound like you’re still trying to figure out what this thing is between us,” I said.

“And you’re not?” Archie countered.

I shook my head. “I know exactly what I want.”

A delicious shiver worked its way through Archie’s body. “You have a funny way of showing it.”

“I’m here now, and it’s only been a few days.”

“Us being in the same room is a coincidence, unless you and my mom are working together as a team.” I looked over his shoulder and saw his mom smiling broadly as she waved at me.

“I’m not a big believer in coincidence.”

“You think us being here on the same night is fate?”

I will always choose the book over the movie. I believe in happily-ever-after. Love inspires everything that I do. Music keeps me sane.

Quirky mystery suspense romance from Amy

TheHeightseBookThe Heights by Amy Aislin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So, this book. I have thoughts, lots of thoughts but mostly I really loved the whole premise of the plot and I think that element was carried out perfectly.

Now, my other major thought is that, due to the vast majority of the romantic elements – including the smexy times which help to build up an emotional connection between the characters and the reader – happening mostly off page or fading to black, I wasn’t as invested in Nat and Quinn as a pairing as much as I was with their individual story arcs.

Don’t get me wrong, I loved them together, I’d have just liked to have seen more of them together and I don’t necessarily mean steamy erotica, but just more of the emotions that come through physical intimacy.

But, the main plot itself, about dealing with loss and guilt and the idea of what makes a family, was mostly well done, with the exception of Quinn’s real parents.

It may be, as this is a new series, that this element is continued on in future books, but I did feel something was missing there.

Overall, this book was a success for me and I liked that it wasn’t a traditional romance or a traditional suspense/mystery but married the two together.

I love this paranormal series from Sam Burns – it just gets more quirky

Stag and the Ash (The Rowan Harbor Cycle, #5)Stag and the Ash by Sam Burns

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sam Burns writes just the sort of paranormal that I love – it’s quirky and there’s always a hint of something otherworldly about even the “normal” types you find in this kind of book.

In Stag and the Ash, we’re back to Jesse and Sean, and things are moving on apace even after the tragic death of Sean’s mum at the hands of the troll.

When three young werewolves arrive in town after their own traumatic experiences, Jesse takes them in despite the latest warning from the mystery helper that danger in on its way to Rowan Harbor once again.

I have to say, I loved the narrative take on how the danger arose, it was a clever way to use the traditional mythos of werewolves and then twist it.

This whole series has been such a refreshing change from the typical urban fantasy/paranormal.
